  • Changes In Attitudes---the name fits!

    "My family enjoyed a relaxing week at 'CIA' and quickly settled into "Island Time." We arrived to find a well-maintained kitchen with plenty of utensils and appliances. Our two kids, along with our guest's son all enjoyed time on the wraparound screen porch. The split bedroom floorplan allowed the kids to have their own space. Island Time for us meant the mornings were spent on the rear porch over breakfast as the sun rose over Bocilla Lagoon. We spent the balance of the day at the beach, collecting the bountiful sharks teeth and shells, and attending the daily sunset over the Gulf. We had a *very* close encounter with one of the many docile manatees that was a treat for the kids. Unfortunately, even though "Island Time" is supposed to move at a slower pace, our week was over far too quickly. We plan to return to "CIA in this special part of the state next year. The owner was easy to work with. We found her accessible when any questions arose before and during our visit. The kids even said it might be the "best" beach getaway we've had as a family. We *all* highly recommend Changes In Attitudes."

  • Awesome Family Getaway

    "This condo provided our family with an awesome getaway and perfect opportunity to spend time together. It was our first visit to LGI, and we had beautiful weather (sunny and 80s) every day. We enjoyed jumping waves in the warm Gulf water, exploring the island on the golf cart (we rented from Julie), playing games, doing puzzles and enjoying family meals on the lanai with the sound of ocean waves in the background. It's difficult to see the ocean from the condo due to palm trees separating the complex from the beach, but the ocean is merely a short walk through the "backyard." I believe it's probably one of the closest units to the beach. The island is full of beauty, fun, relaxation and shells galore. The condo had enough space for our family of five and was well equipped with kitchen needs and beach toys. Julie even provided a crockpot upon my request. The ferry rides were a great free service, but you do have to be careful to plan the times correctly when leaving and returning to the island. Julie was very helpful in providing us directions on our way there and was available when we had questions. She promptly sent us back our deposit upon our return."

  • Heaven on earth

    "The constant sound of the waves and ocean view put me into the most relaxed mode that I can remember. Sitting on the balcony overlooking the gulf and watching the sun set the Dolphins swim was absolutely breathtaking and more than I ever expected. I love the " rustic " feel of this place. There is no place like it. I will definitely return."

  • Best time EVER!

    "My wife and I went to LGI with the sole purpose of looking at available real estate for sale. We rent this house (8918 Gulf St.) due to the lower cost, assumably because it was not beach front. Let me tell you, the beach is a measly one minute beautiful walk over a sandy trail, and your dock is even closer. It is a very narrow section of the island. The island is a step back in time and absolutely perfect. No cars, no crowds, just paradise! As for the rental itself, absolutely perfect for what we were looking for. The price was very reasonable and the owner, Tim, was very easy to work with while I was planning for the trip. No email went unanswered - I would say never more than 30 minutes and I was hearing back from him. If that didn't work, I could have called him but I never needed to. The house is fully functional and I believe Tim is looking to do some updating this summer. If you're planning a trip and you want a nice place at a great price I'd consider this one for sure. We will be back!!"
